Gediminas 8: To put the review short: OVERPRICED for what it does.
Thanks Fuji, after the X-E1 trap I'm not investing thousands into another pretty but crippled product of yours.
Glad DPR dared to call out the flaws this time.
Love my X-E1 trap <3
I don't have a problem with the title - nor this lens, which I've had for a couple of years. I don't use it that often but when I do, I get blown away by the IQ all over again. The teardown reinforces my respect for a very fine lens indeed.
I wonder, do all of the Fuji lenses have that screw arrangement to correct tilt in a couple of critical groups? My 16-55 is decentered just enough to ruin it as a landscape lens, so I wonder if it's easily corrected by this means (by the service guys, of course, not ham-fisted me)?
Ivatt Flying Pig? Lovely shot.
